President to make appearance on talkshow
George Lopez landed a big name cameo in the pilot presentation of his talk show: President Barack Obama.In a clip shown during a Tuesday meeting of the Television Critics Association, the comedian jokingly begs for a cabinet spot from the president. Obama lightly brushes him off, saying: “George, you need to change late night. That’s the kind of change I can believe in.” Lopez hopes the president will appear as a full-fledged guest on his upcoming late-night TBS talk show when it premieres in November. The 48-year-old comedian, who stumped for Obama on the campaign trail last year, told reporters Obama is a “close friend” and that he would be “personally offended” if Obama did not appear on “Lopez Tonight” the next time he is in Los Angeles.
